Preston-based H Parkinson Haulage (HPH) has ordered its first Tiger-built curtainsiders, with 23 tri-axle models joining its fleet of 150 trailers. The new 13.6m trailers will be mainly used to carry paper reels. Tiger has provided a load restraint system which can be stowed when not required to provide flexibility for other load types.

Three of the trailers have been engineered with a completely removable restraint system, enabling the safe carriage of aluminium kegs for brewery work, when required.

The trailers are EN12642 XL certified and expected to stay in operation for 10 years. They will be on the road seven days a week.

Steve Sugden, director at HPH, said: “We were delighted with Tiger Trailers’ refreshing approach to customer service at all stages. Following site visits they provided us with prototype designs which showed smart thinking and a fresh approach, and then regular updates once the build got underway.

“We were reassured every step of the way that Tiger understood our specific needs; indeed, the delivery of the trailers has proven our decision to award the order was the right one.”

HPH is a family-run firm that operates across the UK and provides a 24-hour service.
